Upkeep of your CPAP machine and its parts is one of the most important additions to your daily/weekly routine. In just a few steps, you can maintain the longevity of your supplies and ensure you’re maximizing your CPAP therapy. You’ll also avoid the potential hazards of using dirty CPAP supplies, including harmful airborne dander and bacteria that thrive in moisture.

Yes, if you stay on top of the recommended replacement schedule for the parts of your CPAP machine, you will see the benefits of CPAP therapy. However, there are circumstances that lead to faster deterioration of hoses and filters, which will need to be replaced more often.

Here is how to know when your CPAP hoses and filters are dirty.

Discoloration

Just like you can gauge the color of many surfaces to determine if it’s dirty, the same goes for your CPAP tubing and air filters. A lot of CPAP machines have white reusable filters, so you can quickly see the accumulation of dust, dirt, pet hair or dander that gets blocked to provide you with clean air. These filters should be replaced every two weeks or sooner if you notice discoloration.

Tubing does not discolor as easily, but it can develop discolored spots due to minerals found in standard tap water. This is why the hoses should be cleaned weekly in a bath of warm water and ammonia-free mild dish soap and then hung to dry.

Cloudiness

This is unique to CPAP hoses and can be similar to the discoloration described above. Hard water, which varies depending on your geographical region, deposits small amounts of minerals that can alter the state of tubing when the tubing is repeatedly exposed to it. It is more likely that the hoses will become cloudy, so inspect them for small holes or tears that compromise your air quality while using your CPAP machine.

Slime or Buildup

The moisture in your CPAP machine makes its interior highly prone to sprouting mold, mildew and other deadly bacteria because that environment is an ideal breeding ground. Worst case scenario, you find slime or another kind of buildup in your CPAP tubing, but it would more likely be in your water chamber.

Cold Symptoms

If you’re experiencing symptoms of the common cold but don’t necessarily feel sick, a dirty CPAP machine might be to blame. Whether your hoses have developed holes or tears or your air filter is caked with debris, something is keeping you from breathing clean and appropriately pressured air. You could experience anything from a runny nose to a full respiratory infection that would not go away until you’ve replaced the culprit part of your CPAP machine.

Avoid the Risk

Experts advise cleaning your CPAP mask and water humidifier every day, so take that time to also check the other parts of your CPAP machine for discoloration, cloudiness or holes. Follow the recommended cleaning and replacement schedules, and have backup parts on hand in case of emergencies. Being prepared and proactive is the key to avoiding the risks, and it’s worth taking the extra time.
